Talk:USS Johnston (DD-557)

I copied the contents of this page from DANFS. While other ship's histories I've copied from DANFS have been for the most part NPOV and mostly encyclopedic, this one is too conversational, loaded with POV-ish terms and adjectives. At the moment, I'm more interested in bringing DANFS data over for ships without entries in Wikipedia than editing these for NPOV. Please fix this page! =) Scott B 00:14, 21 Jul 2004 (UTC)

  • See Wikipedia:WikiProject Ships/DANFS conversions for general advice. Of particular concern in this case is the claim that "Kumano later sank". This is true, strictly speaking, but the placement in the text would have you believe that she sank as a result of Johnston's torpedo attack. In fact she survived the battle of Samar, returned to Santa Cruz, and was sunk there in November by air attack [1]. Gdr 09:40, 29 September 2005 (UTC)
  • I've cleaned up some of the POV verbiage and other general editing. Someone needs to provide citations for the numerous quotes in the article or they should be removed. Dabarkey 08:55, 17 January 2007 (UTC)
